Help keep them alive, while paramedics arrive.

More than 9000 people experience an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest in NSW every year.

Cardiac arrest is often unexpected, and for every minute a patient doesn’t get chest compressions, also called Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR), their chances of survival fall by 7-10%.

That’s why NSW Ambulance has partnered with GoodSAM, a program that helps save lives by empowering members of the community to respond quickly when someone nearby goes into cardiac arrest.
